“Can be expensive”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I visit miami every March for the WMC and make sure I catch a Heat game if possible.

I stay in South Beach and usually get a cab over but this time the game started at 6pm. So we went over downtown early on the bus for $2 per person. Then after got a bus back with from the Omni terminal 10min walk from the arena. I possibly wouldn't do this if the game finished around 10pm instead of 9pm.

I visit the Heat store inside which isn't cheap and buy food and drink which again isn't cheap as one would expect. But I would say there's a lot of choice it seems. Just don't go expecting restaurant style food, remember where you are.

The arena is amazing for basketball. Brilliant atmosphere and of course it helps when you're watching the current champions on an ridiculous hot streak!

I'll be back next year with my ID (im almost 40) so I can maybe get served this time for a $9 beer!!!!

“The heat”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

All of the excitement of the heat. The arena is clean, safe and well equipped. Parking is an issue on game night, be prepared for at least a half mile walk. Great food options and so much energy.

“Nice arena; can't stand the food/bev prices”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Have been to several Heat games here and the games are great. I just have a personal objection to $9 beers and $7 hot dogs. 2 suggestions - take the Metro/Metromover to get there and save bundles on parking, and eat before you get there

“Good Facilities”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Went to see the Heat play, nice venue but thats about all i can say as just a stadium.

Whilst you are there check out Bayside next to it, its pretty nice
